Testing fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
There are no exceptions. Your credit or debit card will be charged when you submit your application.
The name on your IDs must match exactly with the name on your application
or you will be denied admission to test. If you are denied admission, you will need to submit a new application. Your previous fee will be forfeited.
Electronic Notification of ADAT Eligibility
The timeline for processing your application depends on your status as an applicant. The eligibility requirements are outlined in the Guide. Once your application has been processed you will receive an email notification concerning your eligibility to test and instructions for scheduling an appointment. Please check your Spam folder if you are unable to locate the notification.
You should schedule 60 to 90 days before your desired test date. Please remember, you may schedule your testing appointment with Pearson VUE only upon receipt of your eligibility letter.
Rescheduling Testing Appointments
Reschedule your test appointment by contacting Pearson VUE at least 24 hours before your appointment. There is a $25 fee for rescheduling your appointment. Appointments can be rescheduled by calling Pearson VUE at 1-888-456-2830 or through www.pearsonvue.com. Leaving a message for a local test center is not sufficient; the local test center cannot schedule, reschedule, or cancel your appointment.
Take the Test at a Pearson VUE Test Center
If you have concerns about scheduling issues or testing conditions—or if there is any unresolved problem—make sure to inform the Test Administrator before leaving the test center. Record this information in the appropriate section of the post-test survey. For issues requiring further action, contact the Advanced Dental Admission Testing Program within five business days of the testing appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org
